Four Until Late


Y ou would think that this picture was made in spring, but it’s not. It was made a couple of days ago. This is a weird year and we normally have two growing seasons. We’ve just entered the second one. Things are starting to bloom again. Trees aren’t blooming except for the ones that HurricaneContinue reading “Four Until Late”

Sometimes, In The Evening


S ometimes it pays to cover old ground. One day I drove out to an odd section of the Ninth Ward. I parked as close to the levee as i could get and walked into the neighborhood which is known as Holy Cross. I saw the wonderful light and stopped. I made about three framesContinue reading “Sometimes, In The Evening”

Fathers And Sons


We listened to a podcast this morning that stopped me in my tracks. It’s a conversation between Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen. I know what some of you are thinking. It’s not about that. Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican, this is worth listening to. You’ll learn something about the two men. More importantly, youContinue reading “Fathers And Sons”

Perfect in the Yard


Maybe this photograph is a little too radioactive. In my defense I cannot predict how WordPress will compress my already compressed .jpeg. Many times I over compensate. Don’t we all? Now that a bit of my life is getting back to some kind of normal feeling workflow I have to be very careful not toContinue reading “Perfect in the Yard”

Circle


So it was. It seems that my attitude has gotten worse towards opening schools too soon just because there’s a dangling carrot. They say follow the money and I did. Don’t fully open the schools and the state loses federal funding. I have a couple of words about it. Two words. I won’t write themContinue reading “Circle”

Where Time Stands Still


Soon. Soon, this wonderful deep green will change. We are in the wettest month of summer. It will stay green. In a few weeks, there will be more heat and less rain. By mid-August much of the green will fade into a sort of dull gray-green. You know what comes next. The lifecycle never changes.Continue reading “Where Time Stands Still”

The Greens of Summer


Summertime. I know summer started a few weeks ago, but I wanted to show you a few pictures from my past. So, the real colors of summer start on July 1, in the age of the pandemic. The picture is pretty. It looks and feels like a rich, verdant summer lawn. With a golden leafContinue reading “The Greens of Summer”

The Blue Distance


Get out of the French Quarter, I tell visitors. I don’t mean quite as far out as the locations in these pictures. Going to some of these places would mean really long days for some of them. But, I live here. I can pick them off one by one when the light and the heatContinue reading “The Blue Distance”

Color of the Blues


My kind of picture. Something backlighted. Something different. Something about nature. I made this picture on a walk. Another dog walk. We are starting to work together again. She stops. I stop. I stop. She stops. Good timing. Good communication. The picture I’m doing this a little inside out. This is one of those photographsContinue reading “Color of the Blues”
